that the administration has made to nato to take the u.s. deployment of u.s. missile defenses to defend the u.s. from europe in to deployment of nato missile defense to nato to defend nato. that was the fundamental shift that occurred in september of 2009. to take system that was able deploy against possibly ten incoming missiles and put in place a nato system under nato command and control put the deference of nato countries. that is the kind of commitment to deterrence that we put in place. we put in place contingency plan to make sure that every nation that is a member of nato has a plan to be defended. that was an important contribution to deterrence. we just completed this month -- this week, last week. the first major article r5 last exercise. the alliance was conducted in the last ten years. many of the country nas participated in the exercise had never participated in an article five exercise and we just completed that. those are the kinds of steps that matter for collective desks. far more than the nuclear weapons you have. particularly when the cost of modernizing the nuclear weapons runs i
and the first thing we'll do is i'll use my conventional forces, and if that fails, use strategic forces. i tell you, it's going to turn around. don't think about it in a nuclear sense, but think strategic first, coming from great distance or no distance, to solve a problem. last, think about the conventional forces and moving and huge costs of standing armies and moving them to the problem. it's just the reality we have to deal with, and how we're going to do that, how are we going to afford it, those are the the questions, i think, that we're going to, as an alliance, come to grips with and understand how to do that; ours, we're not matching resources and capabilities with the security that we desire to have. >> thank you. >> other than that i'm in a good place. >> that leaves a good place. the leading expert brings a dose of reality, make it a concern, particularly such with europe. when you hear those speakers, particularly john cartwright's point about, you know, we have to be ability to exercise and leverage increasing speed and deploy our forces. do you see this happening in nato? is nato
the land free and clear. we have basically two options before us. one was to move forward with eminent domain on the lease portion and the other option was to purchase the property on the open market. we negotiated with the owner. our offer is 10 percent above. what is critical on this particular item is that if we do not have the wells in place we'll spend 3 million $3 million to make a safer work environment and have the ability to sell it after the construction is complete. >> i thought i read here that they are going to lease it? >> they are going to lease it back for a short period of time until they move off the property. they will lease just the house area because the plans were to sell the house and retire. >> so how much are we going to lease it for? >> the lease is basically it's a free lease back as part of making this transition happen because the current lease on the well has expired. so as a counter for not having us vacate the wells, they will lease back during the move out period. >> for free? >> yes. >> they have maintenance obligations so they will maintain the proper
it will allow us to do that in a very deliberate way. >> so this venue is still needed in china town? >> it's still needed at this time. >> my recollection was that this was originally part to be intended a citywide neighborhood city hall kind of program where there would be a presence in each neighborhood of their government. and this is the only one that remains? >> i believe that is correct. so most of the online, most of the in person payments are done at our headquarters at 525 golden gate. >> any other parts of the city that seem to need that service? >> there is a list here as far as all the payments and, let me see, we have our 525, city hall we have dots printing and stationery and then we also do the online payments as well as mail payments. this is the only other physical location besides city hall besides the 525 golden gate. >> is this where there was a commissioner with a conflict of interest? >> i don't recall that in the last 5 years anyway. >> a little local color. >> when did you join ? >> this will be year 6, 2008. >> yes, this goes back to 1999. >> i'm new. thank you. >>
that how we are portrayed is accurate but if it's useful for the intended purpose it should be what the public cares about. as far as how we measure them, there is a couple, i think you have answered my right -- question. the power we are talking about is the treasure islands and hunters point. that is not something that the city enjoys or has relevance for. in item 3, you talk about the combined power of sewer and water of being less than 2 1/2 percent of average income. we have used the two 1/2 for water and sewer objective and this through power in there. >> i wanted to correct that, i'm glad you mentioned it. i will take the brunt for that. the correction measurement is two 1/2 percent excluding power. >> you should know that i hate that measure. the reason i do, and we've been using this for years and it makes absolute sense in the bond rating business. it's a measure of stress on a community's economy. from that standpoint it makes all the sense of the world. where it doesn't make sense is to an awful lot of people. the average income that we are basing on is over $70,000. t
have been influenced by, quote, emotional drama. the u.s. state department confirms that two americans are among the dead. there's new video that appears to show people inside a mall in the hard-hit city of tacloban. many stores and homes have reportedly been stripped bare by survivors desperate, of course, to get food and water, but there is somewk test. test. test. test. test. test. in california one provider said it will grant a two-month extension for over 100,000 customers but still some estimates have more than a million people losing their insurance plan in that state alone. in an effort to spark those interested in signing up for health care, the latest ad from two group, colorado consumer health initiative and progress now are drawing some eye rolls. an ad touting obama care reads let's hope he's as easy to get as this birth control. my health insurance covered the pill which means all i have to worry about is getting him between the covers. i got insurance now. you can too. the group has also done ads featuring a ryan gosling cutout. girls taking shots off of skis and, of cou
-raising grant, did any of these grants help us to make-up the shortfall that we still have the budget last time? >> yes, actually this top two, then. >> great job. thank you. melanie, and one, quick question about the party which was great, you know, we at one point there was 200 folks and at one point, i noticed that there were four commissioners, just as a point of clarification from the city attorney, what is mr. brown and his brown act say about the four commissioners? we can say hey what is going on, i like your shoes and good party and we can't talk about the environment commission business? >> we were not using survey monkey at the party. >> yeah. >> if you want to go ahead i will find the exact. >> okay, just curious, because there might be a time when all seven of us are there celebrating, what do we do, we look the other way and we just say, you know, what happened to the 9ers this weekend? what do we do? >> we under no circumstances will talk about that. we could talk about the english premier league you will get at least two of us interested in that. subject matter. >> okay. and the
. i googled michael jackson's death and i got the date. so, you just use that and you keep going and put it all together. it makes a big case. this is like one of the biggest things we use is graffiti tracker. i'll show you guys a little bit about it real quick. let me log on. down there in tucson or casa grand -- don't beep at me. hey. what's that big tager you have down there? either one. >> [inaudible]. ger you have down there? either one. >> [inaudible]. >> i put you on the spot. * >> i think it's smoker. >> smoker? hold on on that. >> [inaudible]. >> as you can see, once you pull on the graffiti tracker, you have -- this is what the activity is in phoenix right now. i can tell you my top 10 right now, my most active taggers are size, toke, miller, merk, miller, rats, break, i know eight of those right now i have identified. still got to go out and check them. the way we like to do t though, once we identify them, we like to sit down and catch them in the act. it's easier to do in court and make a big case after you catch them in the act. what did you say? you got merc? let's
into a drought and people start using less which is a good thing, we have to do rate increases so they end up getting, the feeling is that you are paying more to get less and factored covered the fixed cost but it feels wrong and it's a tough sell when you are trying to get people to do the right thing and somehow aligning the rate and cost structure would be to our benefit. part of that also is there is this perverse functioning of how we pay for conservation and reclamation. the fact is that every continue evasion project that we authorize raises water rights, that's kind of an odd thing but it's absolutely true, same thing with reclamation. the more we do, the harder it is to say we want more. i'm thinking we should probably take a look at whether it makes sense to have a conservation fee that is a fixed charge and that couldn't just be conservation, but the idea is that this is a commitment that needs to be funded that over the long-term it will improve the portfolio and the metric water in the system and we know it's going to cost money and we can be honest with people upfront and say it
of humanitarian response for save the chirp. thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you. >> coming up, we're going to continue our coverage of typhoon haiyan. a disturbing report on why girls are less likely than boys to be saved when a disaster strikes. that's coming up after the break. >> budget cuts at the pentagon and now brand new military aircraft are being sent straight to the boneyard. is this your tax dollars fast at work? >> brand new military airplanes coming straight off the assembly line, then moth balled. the department of defense spent more than half a billion of your tax dollars on the c27j spartan. why aren't those plains being used? is the spartan a prime example of government mismanagement and waste? i traveled to the biggest military storage facility in the u.s. in tucson, arizona to get answers. >> collecting dust in the arizona desert, the u.s. military's new fleet of c27j spartans. at about $30 million apiece, the cargo planes sit idle, without a mission that, a casualty of sequester cuts. >> the air force had to find a way to reduce their budget and they chose to d
much. want to talk about this melt-up that continues. joining us right now to talk more about markets, brian, nath nathan, michele perry higgins author "the everything binder." thank you for joining us. >> thank you. michelle, let me kick it off with you. talk to us about who is buying this market. got a market at an all-time high tonight. 70 points higher on dow jones industrial average. is this institutional or retail or both? >> i think it's a little of both, maria. the retail side, they've had a confusing year, as you look at what's going on right now. we've seen historical highs on equities, our fixed income, alternative space not such a great year. i have those retailers on the sidelines who are wanting to jump in right now and are excited to jump in. they think they might have missed the party. but i would say be very cautious. >> yeah. i mean, we talked to the ceo of schwab, nathan, this week, and he basically said, i'm not seeing it? i'm not seeing the individual investor back in this market. what do you think? >> i agree with you. i won't see it either. it's not like people
